Brian Champ in Toronto reports on an upsurge in demonstrations against institutional racism and violence
Minneapolis police murdered George Floyd on 25 May. Two days later, in Canada, Regis Korchinski-Paquet, a young Black Indigenous woman, fell or was pushed to her death from her 24th-floor apartment in Toronto. Her family had called for help with an episode of mental distress she was experiencing. The Toronto police arrived, removing the family from the home, leaving only Regis and police inside. Moments later she was dead.
